The Founder of National Democratic Congress (NDC) Jerry John Rawlings has disclosed that he voted for his wife Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, in the 2020 Presidential elections.
Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, is the founder and flagbearer for the National Democratic Party (NDP).
She contested as President in the 2016 elections and Jerry John Rawlings has revealed he did not vote for his own party but that of his wife.
JJ Rawlings, in an interview with Kwaku Sakyi Addo on Asaase FM, said he was in a state of confusion but after several deliberations, he decided to vote for his wife.
“I have a confession, during 2016 I voted for my wife Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, she deserved my support. For the 2020 elections whether I will vote for her or not I won’t say it.She is a very strong woman and if we are to return to earth someday I will still chose her. I tell her I don’t deserve her but nobody deserves her better than me.”
Former First Lady Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings broke away from the NDC to form the NDC after losing to late Prof John Evans Atta Mills in the NDC congress in 2011.
In the December 2016 presidential elections, Agyemang-Rawlings polled 16,935 of the valid votes cast which represented 0.16%.
This year’s Presidential election is seen as a two-horse race between NPP and the NDC and is expected to be a tight one.
President Akufo-Addo and Dr Mahamudu Bawumia will be coming up against former President John Mahama and his running mate Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang.
